The early bird definitely gets the worm with this off-season special from Rock Resorts: Book a ski vacation for the 2012/2013 season by July 31 and save up to 33 percent off your high-end Vail hotel room.
Sure, you don’t know when the snow’s going to be the best, but this deal is a great way to hedge against high lodging rates that crop up in the prime of the season. Good for stays between November 15, 2012 and April 14, 2013, this special works for reservations at either the Arrabelle at Vail Square or the Lodge at Vail.
As with everything, there’s a small catch. The deal applies to reservations of at least four nights. BUT it can be applied to stays of up to 28 nights. Do the math and you’ll see you can save a bundle of cash.
Both of these properties are beautiful hotels with luxurious finishes. The Arrabelle is located in Lionshead and anchors the recent renovation at Vail Square. With its dark wood interiors, exposed beams, and plaster walls, the property is reminiscent of the European lodges that inspired its architecture.
The Lodge was the first hotel ever to open at Vail. Tucked into the village and only steps to the lifts, this quaint, boutique hotel is extraordinary. From the open fireplace in the reception area to the exquisitely decorated rooms, it’s sure to charm.
The Lodge is also home to Elway’s, the newest steak restaurant (eponymously named after its owner, the Broncos’s most famous quarterback) in Vail.
Both properties have scrumptious spas; the Arrabelle’s is more modern while the Lodge’s offers old-world charm.
All of which is to say: Who cares how the snow is? (OK, we know you do, and we do too). Whether it’s dumping blankets of powder or simply sprinkling a dusting of fresh on packed slopes, you’re vacation will be a blast as long as you’ve got a great hotel room.
And with this deal (and the money you’ll save) you’ll love that hotel room even more. Now that’s saying something.
